I am a newbie ,I bought a used 87 cbr600f hurricane.
Black and red, I figure if I would drop it I wouldnt cry too much. I am learning fast. It has a kerker slip on muffler.
its fast enough for now.I am looking to find some people to ride with. I still have a learners permit and will be takeing the test here in a couple weeks,and looking forward to the msf course. It doesnt start till june.

Welcome to the site!

Go for it and take that MSF course. Nothing but good comes out of it.

I was wondering how much you know about the Hurricanes. I was looking at a pic of the 91 cbrs. The top front fairing looks like it mounts the same. I was wondering if it would fit my 87. I like the fact that the air intakes on the 91 run right to the intake ports on the frame,kind of like ram air. I will need to replace the fairings someday and would like to know if this would be an option.


thanks for all the replies and any info

I agree that is a great bike to learn on. True, if you drop it it's not a big worry! (not like you have just scratched a new $10,000 bike!) I agree there are a lot of good roads up there, but speaking from experience be cautious on the old PA turnpike!! You have those Wild Pennsylvania Mufflers up there!! Those things suck!
Well, happy riding, be safe, and keep the rubber side down!

feeling welcome here

I would like to thank all of you for making me feel welcome. This site seems to be one big happy family.
I will be careful and take the msf course. I love the hurricane. It has enough power for me for now.
I was wondering how many of you have evr owned a hurricane. Everybody keeps saying it is a great bike to learn on, just curious.

Welcome, don't know about the family thing. I would never want to be classified as related to some of the freaks here.
